6:48 am
$1.6 million facility last month. the society was able to pay for it from the estate of a local woman and that may have led to the drop of the donations. >> as soon as we started to build it we saw a decrease in the donations. when you build a building like this, the perception is that you're flush with money. >> reporter: and the irony is that they could have kept the money the woman left them but they would still be in the old facility and would not be able to care for the animals they thought they needed to care for them. and that comes during cat season as well. and more kitten are being born because more carts breeding. you'll -- more cats are breeding. you'll hear more from the shelter later this morning. state department has issued a travel warning to mornings saying that al qaeda and other groups are planning attacks
